I have been asked to do a Tinkerbell cake, and making the Tinkerbell figurine by hand, out of gum paste....

Now, I've done simple figurines, snowmen, dogs, winnie the pooh, fish etc... I have done one woman figurine but have never attempted something like a Tinkerbell...

I could REALLY use some help and advice on this! The cake has to be done on the 31st.

Here's a good video for modelling flower fairies

Obviously if you don't have the molds you'll have to model the head, and you can just improvise with getting it in proportion. Maybe get a ring and measure out that way for the limbs and then something slightly larger for the body. The basics are in that video though. And if you don't have the cutters you can just use any flower cutter for the dress and a calyx cutter for the hat or do it free hand.
